Pupusas, a special Commonplace Coffee blend, and other Pittsburgh food news


Allegheny Wine Mixer
5326 Butler St., Lawrenceville. alleghenywinemixer.com
This wine bar posted a dimly lit photo to their Instagram with the caption: “We’re ready enough. Open tonight til midnight!” on June 20. So it's safe to assume they are back in business serving batched cocktails and wine to the Pittsburgh area. Get anything from an Old Fashioned Flight to a bottle of Pinot Gris for a great price.

Cafe Agnes

If you’re frequenting the Bloomfield or Squirrel Hill farmers markets, be sure to stop by Cafe Agnes for delicious Salvadoran pupusas. The pupusa is a cornmeal or rice flour griddlecake or flatbread that is traditionally stuffed with ingredients like cheese, pork, or refried beans. Cafe Agnes now offers take-home pupusa kits that allow you to make the popular dish from the comfort of your home.
